A tattoo gets them in trouble… He will get them out.

After years of cultivating an undercover identity, Brody West is finally off the case and free to live a life of his own. All that time spent in the company of criminals and killers left him a little jaded… and with an identity crisis. He isn’t sure who he is anymore, or who he wants to be.

To give him time to think, he takes a few days off to go fishing. On his way out of town, he makes a routine stop at the bank and finds himself flirting with the girl behind the counter.

But his flirtation is cut short when criminals burst into the bank and shoot her right before his eyes.

In attempt to administer first aid, Brody reveals a tattoo on his back. A mark that will drag him and the girl into the kind of situation he was trying to get away from. But he can’t walk away because he’s the only thing capable of keeping Taylor alive and bringing down the guys who shot her—guys who are seriously dangerous.

My eyes traveled around the room, seeking out the man whose name I couldn’t remember. Our eyes locked for one long second. It was like we were the only two people in the room. He wasn’t crying or begging for his life. He wasn’t sweating or looking for a way to save his ass.

He was standing there, in the center of the room, calm and strong, like this situation wasn’t that big of a deal. He made me feel better, more in control.

Another duffle flew out of the vault and one of the men stepped out. There had to be millions of dollars in those bags. Not only would it ruin this bank, the people who did business here, but my father as well.

My newfound strength made me brave.

I stepped in front of one of the bags, giving a level look to the men who intended to take it. “If you leave now, you might get away.”

The man standing directly in front of me smirked and the smirk turned into a full-blown smile. I realized my mistake then.

I tried to entice them with freedom, with the thought of getting away unscathed. These men didn’t care about that. If I had been thinking clearly, I would have realized that from the beginning. None of them were wearing ski masks or those plastic masks that looked like creepy clowns or animals. They weren’t even trying to hide their faces.

Men who didn’t hide their faces in a situation like this were either really desperate or really meticulous and had a fail-proof plan. They planned to be long gone before anyone could recognize their faces.

I wasn’t going to stop them.

No one was.

The man standing in front of me raised his gun, pointing it right at me.

And then he pulled the trigger.



The top 5 things every writer needs.

1. A Nespresso Machine – everyone knows that writers need their caffeine. That the long hours spent at the computer, or even just mapping out a story in their head is exhausting. Coffee is the drug of choice for almost every single writer (and non-writer!) I know. I recently was given the gift of a Nespresso Machine. I wasn’t sure if I would like it because truth be told I’m not a huge fan of the Kuerig. But that’s probably because I’m a latte girl. The Nespresso that I have steams the milk and brews espresso and pours it all into my cup. I add some caramel (what, every girl needs a little sugar in her life) and viola! Instant writer juice. I highly recommend this machine. It’s a genius. And it never talks back like my characters.

2. Pajamas and sweatpants – You don’t actually think writer’s sit around looking glamorous all day do you? Heck, no. I roll out of bed throw on some sweats and a t-shirt and take my kids to school. Then I come home and sit at the computer for as long as my brain will let me. Only after all of that do I force myself to work out and take a shower. Then usually I just put more bum clothes on.

3. An iPhone – because when the characters won’t let you sleep at night it’s much easier to grab your phone and type a note than it is to reboot your laptop back up. Plus the ease of social media on the go, email and various apps it’s easier to keep up as you move.

4. An Editor – because every writer has issues they can’t fix. That’s what an editor is for. I myself have an ongoing obsession with the word “that”. My editor literally needs a shovel to dig them all out of my manuscripts.

5. Peace and Quiet – Don’t laugh!! I’m serious! And yes, I have kids. I know a lot of people who write with earphones or headphones. Some use music to drown out noise – though to me that just creates more noise. I don’t think headphones would work for me either – I would feel too much like a pilot or something. My favorite times of day to write are when my kids are at school and I can turn off the TV, the radio and all the noise. I also like to write at night when everyone is sleeping though I admit that’s harder because I tend to get sleepy faster. So those are my top 5 things that a writer needs. Maybe not every writer

– I’m sure some require different things. And on certain days I require more than that but I’m trying to keep it simple. 🙂 Huge thank you for having me here today!!

5 things you should never say to a writer

1. Who is your publisher?
Does it really matter? If the book is good who cares? Good books can come from Indies, big publishers, small publishers

2. I wish I could work from home. That would be so easy.
In reality working from presents its own challenges. I know that for me, I have a hard time sitting down and writing when the floor needs vacuumed, the dishes need done and the dogs are standing at the door to go outside (and then when they do they stand there and bark). Not to mention most of us have kids that always want something or never be quiet. And if the kids are in school you have to balance writing and marketing with volunteering at school, transporting them to and from, etc.

3. What’s your real job?
Writing is a real job.

4. Will you write me into your book?
If I did I would have to kill you. In the book! What were you thinking?

5. I don’t like to read.
The minute those words come out of someone’s mouth I usually stop listening to you all together…. LA LA LA LA I can’t hear you!

So spill, have you ever said any of these things to a writer? What do you think would be something you should never say to a writer?

Thank you for having me here today! 🙂


Would you Rather?

Have you ever played the game Would you Rather? You know where you ask someone what they would rather do?

Yes, I am a grown adult.

It’s still fun. Ha ha ha.

So for today’s post we are going to play Would you Rather. Actually I am and you get to read it. LOL. But feel free to leave your answers in the comment section!

Today I will be answering these three questions:

Would you rather be a giant hamster or a tiny rhino?

Would you rather always wear earmuffs or a nose plug?

Would you rather always win pie-eating contests or always win wheelbarrow races?

And here are my answers!!

Would you rather be a giant hamster or a tiny rhino?
I did a lot of soul searching to come up with this answer, days of sitting quietly

to think and reflect. Okay, no I didn’t. I just looked at the question ten seconds ago. But I don’t need to reflect to know which one I prefer. I would rather be a tiny rhino.

rhino for would you rather

Why? Because (and I will probably get hate email for this) but I don’t like hamsters. They are like rats and they just aren’t my thing. Plus, if I were a giant anything I think it would be hard to fit into places, find enough food to fill my belly and I would probably frighten people everywhere I went. Now being a tiny rhino I wouldn’t have those problems. I could find enough food, I could hide if I wanted to be left alone and most people would probably think I was cute because I was so tiny and they would spoil me and give me good stuff. (I don’t know what becuase I have no clue what rhino’s think is good stuff) lol.

So that’s my answer. Next question!

Would you rather always wear earmuffs or a nose plug?


Earmuffs! (Aren’t those cute?) The reason I would wear earmuffs is because having something pinching my nose at all hours of the day and night would be super annoying and I would be so grouchy. Plus, I would sound like Pee Wee Herman when I talked. Everyone would laugh at my funny sounding voice. Earmuffs have some advantages though, one I could go to a crowded store to shop and the noise wouldn’t bother me. I wouldn’t have to hear kids crying in the aisles, people talking loud, etc. Also, I wouldn’t hear my dog bark in the middle of the night and wake me up (she’s been doing that a lot lately, grrr) and I could tune out my kids when they start bickering (she touched me! She looked at me! He said I was stupid!….. mom’s everywhere are cringing)Plus if someone asked me to do something i didn’t want to do I could point to the earmuff’s and pretend I couldn’t hear them. Sure with a nose plug I wouldn’t have to smell stinky smells again but I wouldn’t be able to smell the good stuff either… like cinnamon rolls and coffee. Talk about a tragedy. So you see the only choice for me is earmuffs.

Final question!

Would you rather always win pie-eating contests or always win wheelbarrow races?


This is very difficult. I mean look at all that mouth watering pie… YUMMY! I can think of worse things than winning pie eating contests all the time. But still…

I would have to choose the wheel barrel races. I would rather always win those.

wheelbarrow racing Would you rather

I know. I’m crazy. But here’s the thing. If I was constantly shoving pie in my mouth I would be unhealthy, I would have a stomach ache and I would probably stop thinking pie was tasty. What a shame!

So I think I would rather always win wheel barrel races because that would mean I was athletic, I had a good friend (can’t do a wheel barrel race alone!) and it also meant I would get so much exercise that I could eat all the pie I wanted and still fit into my jeans!!! Win Win!!!

So that is Would you Rather! Tell us your answers below!!

Get to know the author

Readers have a great privilege of stepping directly into an author’s mind. They have in front of them in black and white what someone else was thinking and feeling as they were writing. It’s actually pretty personal. But even though you read the thoughts that swirl through an author’s mind doesn’t mean you really know them, because the thoughts and feelings they write are usually a character’s.

I think sometime’s reader’s wonder about the person behind the book. The author. So in today’s post I am going to tell you 10 things about me that you don’t know.

10 things about Cambria

1. My favorite movies are the Fast & Furious movies. I watch them all the time.

2. I hate crickets. All the crickets that are around my house are always missing a leg. It’s the creepiest thing ever.

3. My favorite food of all time is cereal. (Any kind)

4. When I write I wear a hoodie and flip the hood up over my head. It blocks out distractions.

5. I’m extremely stubborn. (Yep, I’m a Taurus)

6. I can be superstitious.

7. I hate clutter. (That show hoarders gives me hives).

8. I use Proactiv because I suffer from acne. (notice I said suffer. I mean really, is it fair I am 32 and still have to have it??)

9. I like to run. It helps me clear my head and manage stress.

10.I’ve moved six times in the past 10 years.

And those are ten things about Cambria Hebert.
